A fun, small scale adventure.
Conan: Tower of the Elephant (CTOE) sports solid gameplay. The controls are easy. The story moves along briskly, and is easy to follow. You don't have to juggle stats or manage branching, ability trees. There are many different enemy types, ranging from guards, to wraiths, to giant spiders and more. The graphics, while not jaw dropping, get the job done. The music matches up to the character.
However, the game is rather short--falling around 2-3 hours in length. Accessing the map is a chore. After beating the game and unlocking all the treasure chests, there are still empty spots on the inventory screen. Lastly, if you don't have at least an iPhone 4, CTOE isn't going to work that well. Its not cool how Chillingo has marginalized so many by ignoring the older platforms. Sadly, it is what it is.
If you've an iPhone 4 or better and are looking for a fun, fantasy romp, this game is for you. However, if you've only a 3G, 3GS or second gen iPod, you may just be throwing away your money.
Retro adventure at its finest
I have been taken back 10 years. Where adventure games where challenging and you had to figure things out on your own. I agree there could be a bit more polish on the controls but the point is not to be showing fireworks and special effects but rather focus on an awesome interactive world, and story. This is perfect for the Conan fans and generation who appreciates some real gaming challenges!
Like one user mentioned earlier this game is a little glitchy for sure. The further you advance and go into new areas the game will shut down. I am not able to go into the tower yet because of game crashing. I still give this game 4 stars because it is a fun game and Abigail Conan fan. Will give 5 when glitches fixed.
